I just read out of the comments that it's a laptop you're talking about. First you should check on dust. Look under your keyboard and you'll find the place where the heat comes from. It looks like this:
Place a vacuum cleaner on it to remove dust. Also on the little grills under the laptop.
Also play games on a flat platform, so not on your lap or a blanket.
If that didn't work, you could open up the laptop to clean any other dust, buy a new cooler or you could buy something like this:

It would be. easier to help if we knew the model of laptop and which processor it has. But basics would be to check the temps first (I use core temp), to see if it really is overheating, next would be to check to make sure the air vents aren't blocked, next would be to clean it with a can of compressed air, and check all fans to make sure their working properly and if it's still is running too hot, you can use a chill pad to help remove the heat or if you know what your doing, you can take the laptop apart, remove the heatsink and reapply new thermal paste with high grade artic silver which will allow the heatsink to remove from the processor and chipset.0
